Technocrats dominated policymaking across Latin America in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Now, in much of the region, including its largest democracies, voters and politicians on both the left and the right have challenged the role of technocrats in democratic governments. What explains technocrats’ declining legitimacy in many Latin American democracies? How have technocrats changed their approach to governance in the face of these challenges?
